Can someone help me identify the fonts in this image? Thanks!
Mid Victorian style. Not certain if typefaces or engraved. Three styles. Top & bottom lines seem to match a widely used 19th century typeface -- Lightface Celtic. You can decide for yourself based on the attached specimen of the full character set.

Barcelona could be modified for an approximate match of Lightface Celtic.
Replace Barcelona's Latin serifs, expand the width, moderate the curl in C and e, revise R and N, and use a simpler ampersand.
Barcelona Book BQ:
A real find! It has the right letters to replicate the Lightface Celtic portion of the label. The swashes are a nice bonus.
